Need advice for Network+ exam

D-boyD-boy Member Posts: 595 ■■□□□□□□□□
Hi Folks,

I need your advice again icon_redface.gif , how in deph does Network+ go? Is Mike Meyers All-in-one 2nd edition and Transcenders enough to pass the exam? What are the best practice tests for the exam? Should I read a book then do the practice tests after? What is the best way to study for this exam? Will i need to know all the network speeds & cable lengths? For each type of network? Any advice from people who have passed would be greatly appreciated icon_wink.gif Does it only test basic network knowledge? Again like the A+ I don't know what to expect how hard how easy..... I found the A+ to be really easy... :D

    You're using the same I used to pass. I also used the Technotes from this site, which I thought were great to carry along. Whenever I got stuck in traffic, or had a few minutes or whatever, it certainly helped to have them handy. I felt Net+ was relatively easy, I had little prior experience, other than myself reading. I would say if thought A+ 2003 was easy, you should have no problem with Net+. As far as what to know, you should know all the Objectives , you may see a question for any one of them. Right now is a good time to takle Net+, because they are redoing it next year, with more difficult objectives. Take the time, you passed A+, you can pass Net+. Good Luck..

    Here's a couple more sites to feed your brain.....

    I found transcender to be really good, if you can get a high score on their questions you have no problems at all with the actual exam.

    yeah, pretty much. I don't rememeber much about the exam itself because it was a while ago, but I think it just focussed on the OSI, and trouble shooting scenario's, such as an incorrect default gateway or subnet mask, just stuff like that .....

    I would just relax and not worry too much, I found net+ to be my easiest cert so far. As Ricka182 said, if you found A+ easy you will have no drama with net+.

    good luck, let us know how you go ..... :D

    I passed the Network+ exam today.
    I used LearnKey Network+ CD's, Exam Essentials practice exams, Self Test practice exams and the Technotes from this site.
    I don't have alot of actual hands on experience and I had trouble with the implementing and network support part of the test, but passing is passing. I got a 740/900.

    Do they go deep into IP addresing and Subnetting? These subjects are French to me icon_cry.gif

    I've been studying for about a month now and I have come to the conclusion that they pretty much want you to be able to identify Class A, B, and C addresses and be able to convert a Binary number to an IP address.

    The transcender software I bought has a few questions on it regarding this. I have not ran into a questinn referring to Class D or E addressing, but I would memorize them anyways.

    Actual 'subnetting', which means calculating subnets or number of hosts for a given range etc, is not a topic for the Network+ exam.

    TeKniques mentioned the most important, I just wanted to add that you should be able to know the default subnet masks for a given IP (hence you need to know the class of that IP first), and the private address ranges.

    If you read, understand, and memorize the contents of
    you should be able to answer all related questions.

    Thank you TeKniques & Webmaster for your advice. I will use both suggestions icon_wink.gif

    And there is a trick to the Class A, B and C addresses as well.

    Upper bit(s) of first octet:

    0 (number is <12icon_cool.gif Class A
    10 (number is > or =128, less than 192) Class B
    110 (number is > 0r = 192) Class C.

    Class A reserves 8 bits for network, so subnet is
    Class B reserves 16 bits, so it's
    Class C reservers 24 bits,

    If you know binary it's really simple.

    I'm sitting tomorrow. :)
    I'm not a complete idiot... some parts are missing.
